Opera Integra is an award-winning member of the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA), renowned for its high standard productions. Our wide-ranging repertoire includes fully staged operas with a professional reduced orchestra, opera galas, and staged opera scenes with piano. They believe passionately in the power of opera to bring people together. This ethos means they not only support vibrant new talent at the early stages of their careers but also provide a platform for those who enjoy singing as a creative pastime to venture the world of staged opera. Chorus singers are encouraged to progress to principal roles and soloists get valuable ensemble experience in the chorus.

How can you help? Cruse Bereavement Care supports about 300 people each year who are struggling to cope because someone has died. 100% say they would recommend this service to others. 100% of the service is delivered by trained volunteers. Could you become one of them? Come learn about bereavement support, expand your understanding of this very rewarding type of volunteer work and equip yourself with the knowledge you'll need to decide if this special kind of volunteering is right for you. No experience necessary, could be perfect especially (but certainly not only) for the 'almost retiring' and 'newly retired' looking to devote some meaningful time to a worthwhile cause. If you have the ability to listen, show empathy and understanding and have an interest in supporting people who are struggling because someone has died, please come to this 90-minute session to learn more about how you might be able to help.

If you are interested, please supply your name and number to Reception and we will forward onto Cruse.
